Update Log

Does anyone know what this article is referencing? Go cart? Huh? What?
Answer: The 10th Mountain Division, being responsible for developing and testing new equipment had a wide array of equipment that was used in and around Camp Hale. This article describes one such vehicle. Another one, described by Chuck Roberts, was something that was like a motorbike with skis used to pull cargo and men around.

Instead of a Photo of the Week I am including articles as well (for lack of photos).
This one comes courtesy of the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection and was published in the Ski-zette on Saturday, September 30, 1944.
(It probably didn't apply to Mountain Troops)

Pvt. Armbruster is awarded with a unit challenge coin for going above and beyond as a member.
He has not only sheltered the unit under canvas, but has also served as a valuable source of info on the 10th and its history.
"But that's not the worst part...."
He also has clearly defined what 'a little' means.

If there was as thought bubble it'd read: "ugh, this is so weird and none of these guys in this unit talks to me."
Yea..... all that's about to change.
